* CompromisingCall: The Joker has paid Councilman Arthur Reeves a visit. During this time, Andrea Beaumant--the daughter of the man they're discussing--calls, and the Joker--immediately suspicious--forces Arthur to pretend that all is well. Afterwards, the Joker comments on this:
--> '''The Joker''': "Now ain't that a co-inkidink. We're discussing the old man and the fruit of his loins just happens to call. Makes you wanna laugh..."
-->The next scene is Reeves in a fit of laughter in the hospital.

%%** Also the Joker when he was a mob hitman. He's rude to Andrea, and threw a lit cigarette at Bruce as he's driving away.

** Joker was partially responsible for the origin of Batman, like in the [[Film/{{Batman}} 1989 movie]].

* AnimationBump: The film has noticeably better animation compared to the average ''Batman The Animated Series'' episode. A few select set pieces stand out (a few of the Phantasms' smoke effects and the final explosions at the Gotham World Fair most notably).

* LeaveYourQuestTest: Take away everything to do with Batman being framed, the Phantasm trying to get revenge on the Joker, and Bruce Wayne's failure to hold on to a woman. This is the core of the film, where Batman's ready to become a masked vigilante and go down the path of darkness and angst forever (although he hasn't seen any bats yet)...but has found happiness with Andrea Beaumont, the GirlOfTheWeek. This leads into one of the saddest scenes in all of the Franchise/{{DCAU}}, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TjAFbEP0wK4 where he begs his (dead) parents to let him go]].

* SeriesFauxnale: The movie was originally intended to be the series finale, which is why Joker seemingly dies at the end.

* AnimationBump: Unfortunately averted. The animation quality is on level with a really good episode of the series proper, rather than feature film quality. A few select set pieces do stand out (a few of the Phantasms' smoke effects and the final explosions at the Gotham World Fair most notably), but it's otherwise rather standard. The reason is the producers didn't even know Warner Bros was going to give it a theatrical release. Bruce Timm even said for all intents and purposes the movie was a DirectToVideo.
